I’m really late in posting this but it’s not too late — the guest chefs from Hyatt Regency Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, are still at Straits Kitchen this Ramadan till 8 August 2013! The specials are the spread of cold and hot mezze, a shawarma station complemented by grilled meat and seafood from the charcoal grill, and decadent cakes and pastries~
Though there’s also a variety of popular local dishes such as satay, beef rendang, chicken rice and laksa available, I only focused on the Middle Eastern section — the main reason why I was there in the first place. Hummus, muhammara, tabbouleh, labneh, baba ghanoush… Oh my, I was in mezze heaven! The muhammara was so good, way better than Artichoke’s! Everything else was pretty average, though K did sing praises of the Indian selection. Desserts like the traditional baklava and um ali (Egyptian version of bread pudding) were expectedly sweet, so I stuck to the homemade pandan kaya cake and coconut ice cream ❤
